Digiday announces new senior editors for media, marketing, news

With the future of the media and marketing industries feeling more uncertain than ever, Digiday has solidified a talented editorial leadership team that will be central to fulfilling our mission of confronting the truths in technology’s disruption of these industries with honesty and integrity.

“These promotions build on Digiday’s storied editorial foundation and heritage — but also look to meet the new challenges and opportunities of this complex and transforming moment in the media and marketing space,” said Digiday editor-in-chief Jim Cooper. “Their elevations will set us up to accomplish two very important things: they will be the senior team helping set our editorial north stars and guide execution. And they’ll be the team that will help recruit, hire and mentor the next generation of great Digiday reporters.”

Tim Peterson has been promoted to senior media editor. Tim has been covering the media and advertising industry since 2011. He currently focuses on the TV and streaming video industry and has also written about digital publishing, social media and ad tech and his weekly Future of TV Briefing has become an industry must read.

In his new role Seb will work closely with the senior team and new reporters to set and guide our news coverage — breaking it and analyzing it — across media, marketing and TV. Seb is based in London.
